This map showing the locations of 330 American drone strikes in Pakistan, using data from the Buruea of Investigative Journalists, via The Guardian.

The strikes are believed to have caused up to 3,247 casualties – including up to 852 civilians. 

Not surprisingly, most of the strikes are concentrated in Waziristan, a Federally Administered Tribal Area known to be a major terrorist hotspot. 

But within Wazirstan, upwards of 50 of the strikes have taken place within a few miles of a single traffic artery —  Miran Shan Bannu Road.
